We are Andrew and Kate and we want to thank you so much for taking the time to get to know us through our profile. We are a fun and adventurous couple who love to learn, travel, and spend time with friends and family. We hope this book will give you a peek into our lives.
We have been together since 2014 and have always wanted to become parents. Our son Ronan was born in 2020, and being parents to him has brought out the best in us. As a family, we enjoy being outdoors; whether it is going to a local park or taking a hike on a nice day. Ronan loves to play and gets along well with others. We know he will make a great big brother! We are excited to grow our family through adoption and will shower any child who enters our home with love, validation and support.
We can’t imagine how difficult it must be to consider all of the choices available to you and your child. We admire your strength and courage and promise to always honor your love.
